please help
hello. Im going to be totally honest here and say Ive just completed a course of Nandrolone(deca) and depotrone(testosterone) for bodybuilding purposes. Its the 1st time ive used this and I have a problem. During my course I developed gynocomastia but I sorted this out by using 20mg of tamoxifen citrate until the gyno subsided. However I have a new concern-testicular atrophy. It has shrunk quite a bit and I dont know what to use to bring it back up to normal size. Please can you advise me what to take that will help. Ive heard on the bodybuilding section that Pregnyl is used for this purpose, but there are no experts in that section and I dont wana take just anyones advise. Please help. Im also too scared to go to my DOC and tell him what Ive done.thanks alot for your help !

Dear Kevin

Thank you for visiting

You are experiencing the classical symptoms of the use of anabolic steroids. I suggest that you stop the use of these drugs, instead of using other drugs to combat the visible side effects. Please note that the real risk of using anabolic steroids, is cardiac enlargement and this increases your chances of getting a heart attack tremendously.

Pregnyl can be effective to combat testicular atrophy but as mentioned before, rather stop the use of anabolic steroids, for the testicular atrophy will stop and your testicles will return to the normal size.

Good luck and please feel free to contact me again if you have any concerns in the future.

Kind regards

Dr Anrich Burger
